3 Rewrites performance / economy equation First with electric AWD Rewrites performance / economy equation First with electric AWD

4 LEXUS Hybrid + E-Four = HIGH TORQUE

5 50 kW Electric Power 123 kW

6 130 Nm Electric Motor Torque 333 Nm

7 Petrol Engine 288 Nm Maximum 288 Nm Maximum Engine Speed (rpm) Torque (Nm) Output (kW) 250Nm/1500rpm

8 High torque L/100km = Diesel alternative LESS WEIGHT LESS WEIGHT

9 Diesel Competitors Weight 2105 kg 2105 kg 2150 kg 2150 kg 2235 kg 2235 kg 2350 kg 2350 kg 2040 kg 2040 kg X5 M-Class Touareg Discovery RX400h

10 RX400h vs V6 competitor Reduction of 2 tonnes CO 2 RX400h vs V6 competitor Reduction of 2 tonnes CO 2 RX400h CO 2 Reduction per annum RX400h vs diesel competitor Reduction of 1.4 tonnes CO 2 RX400h vs diesel competitor Reduction of 1.4 tonnes CO 2

11 Valve timing change 3MZ-FE Engine Smooth engine stop/start

12 3MZ-FE Power & Torque rpm rpm Engine Speed (rpm) Torque (Nm) Output (kW)

13 Changes of Hybrid Operation Remove starter Remove alternator Add ceramic catalyst Remove starter Remove alternator Add ceramic catalyst No “fan” belt

14 LEXUS Hybrid System Seamless acceleration Seamless acceleration Overseas model shown

15 2 x 650 Volt motor generators links to petrol engine, front axle via compound gear set 2 x 650 Volt motor generators links to petrol engine, front axle via compound gear set

16 Generator Battery 2 x electric motors

17 Solid-state Inverter 650V 288V switching

18 Two-stage planetary gears GS450h

19 Compound planetary gears Compound planetary gears x2

20 drive motor gearing multiplies torque, allows more compact motor drive motor gearing multiplies torque, allows more compact motor

21 Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission Electronically controlled Continuously Variable Transmission Optimum efficiency No shift points Seamless acceleration No slippage / loss of energy Optimum efficiency No shift points Seamless acceleration No slippage / loss of energy

22 E- FOUR Saves on fuel Traction when required Added torque for take-off/acceleration Traction in marginal conditions Saves on fuel Traction when required Added torque for take-off/acceleration Traction in marginal conditions

23 E- FOUR Operation Acceleration Tight cornering Acceleration Tight cornering

24 Regenerative Braking RX400h – braking on both axles Maximum efficiency RX400h – braking on both axles Maximum efficiency

25 E-FOUR / VDiM VDiM can activate E-FOUR Varies front / rear torque split Up to 72 : 28

26 VDiM Steering Assist Control Assistance is skid control, braking and accelerating on split – mµ surfaces

27 Electric Power Steering 42 Volt DC motor Reduced engine load 1.5% fuel saving DC/DC converter 42 Volt DC motor Reduced engine load 1.5% fuel saving DC/DC converter

28 RX400h Air-Conditioning Electric-powered compressor Cools vehicle while engine stopped Efficient cooling, greater fuel efficiency Electric-powered compressor Cools vehicle while engine stopped Efficient cooling, greater fuel efficiency

29 RX400h NO COMPROMISE

30 TRUE LEXUS
